Confirm me in Thy service


Friday, April 10

To the Bahá’í Friends in Cluster 19:

The 9-day expansion phase of the 15th cycle of our Intensive Program of Growth begins tomorrow.  For the next 10 days we will be making intensive efforts to share the Message of Bahá’u’lláh in a direct way with our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers.  Teaching teams will be meeting at several locations around the cluster on the next two weekends prior to going out to teach, in order to receive the support that comes from participating in a collective effort.  Some friends may also choose to do some door-to-door teaching.  As part of this campaign, we are hoping that all the Friends will support the teaching with a collective prayer effort by saying the Prayer for the Western States every day.  We will also be sending a prayer and a quote from the Writings to you via email every day during the expansion phase.  Our hope is that each of us will say the prayer and focus on the quote each day, and that through this participation, our hearts will be united every day of the 9 days of our expansion phase (Saturday, April 11 – Sunday, April 19).  Please remember to call on our dear Hand of the Cause William Sears for assistance during this cycle.  We are confident of the great spiritual forces that will be at work due to this united effort!

With warmest Baha’i greetings,

Your Cluster 19 Core Team

The following commune is to be read … every day:

O God! O God! This is a broken-winged bird and his flight is very slow – assist him so that he may fly toward the apex of prosperity and salvation, wing his way with the utmost joy and happiness throughout the illimitable space, raise his melody in Thy Supreme Name in all the regions, exhilarate the ears with this call, and brighten the eyes by beholding the signs of guidance.

O Lord! I am single, alone and lowly. For me there is no support save Thee, no helper except Thee and no sustainer beside Thee. Confirm me in Thy service, assist me with the cohorts of Thy angels, make me victorious in the promotion of   Thy Word and suffer me to speak out Thy wisdom amongst Thy creatures. Verily, Thou art the helper of the weak and the defender of the little ones, and verily Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty and the Unconstrained.
